Adam Smith en Pekín (Cuestiones de antagonismo)

One of the most thought provoking books I’ve read in the last year or so. Return to Book Page.

Arrighi’s goal in this book is to show how the global economic centers will finally shift away from Western Europe and the United States and towards East The work of Giovanni Arrighi has centered on economic cycles in global scale.

Arrighi’s book is an illuminating exploration of the rise of China as the new hegemonic state in global politics. This book could be called: David rated it it was ok Jan 25, I do give credit to Arrighi for being positive about China’s growth and partially progressive nature, while other leftists have totally dismissed China without a very deep understanding of the country or culture.

Adam Smith in Beijing: Wu Zheng rated it it was amazing May 25, Provocative as it may sound, the title actually captures the essence of the book: Fernanda rated it really liked it Jan 24, For me the real question is will the current reforms in land tenure lead to greater concentration of wealth as well as lead the way to a total establishment of capitalism. The book is at least as much about the US as China. To the point where, for a large portion of the electorate, a clown like Trump could seem like a more plausible candidate for chief executive than many a professional politician as a side note, much as I lamented the result of the election last November, with time it seems increasingly clear that Hillary Clinton did indeed deserve to lose; here was someone who not only supported the invasion at the time, but has adamantly refused to learn anything from it, strongly advocating more bombing campaigns in Libya and Syria; it’s entirely plausible her foreign policy would have been more disastrous than Trump’s.


Julio Primo rated it it was amazing Jul 09, As indicated by his liberal use of the conditional tense in the epilogue, Arrighi himself is aware of the gaps in his analysis. Tugsan rated it really liked it Jun 23, I am not sure I fully accept this analysis but it is a strong wake up call to the USA to become economically more competitive, get rid of its debt mountain, learn to save, grow its manufacturing base on a hi tech competitive basis, reform its education system back to hard science, math and engineering and all those absolutely unlikely actions that conservatives are sleep walking away from and liberals probably don’t get.

Adam Smith en Pekín by Giovanni Arrighi (1 star ratings)

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Bush’s invasion permanently destabilized the Middle East, letting loose a chaos that continues to spiral and threatens to engulf the globe.

Together they constitute a stunning work of world history with theoretical and political intent whose intellectual roots lie in a mix of radical historiographical traditions. In the late eighteenth century, the political economist Adam Smith predicted an eventual equalization of power between the conquering West and the conquered non-West.

Arrighi here turns to Adam Smith to help theorize a market-based form of development that is nonetheless non-capitalist. I really learned a lot about Adam Smith’s theories too, which is a surprise. Oct 11, Nic Paget-Clarke rated it it was amazing. Megan Kaminski rated it it was amazing Oct 26, But we overextended ourselves and now China is ready for its peaceful assent. Cleanly written, engaging, and up-to-date. Mar 24, Doni rated it liked it Shelves: The author knows this, but evidently feels the need to offer a more hopeful alternative.


Adam Smith in Beijing. He stresses the role of the state in building the market and the historical Chinese state’s role in limiting the market and full blown capitalism.

Adam Smith in Beijing: Lineages of the Twenty-First Century by Giovanni Arrighi

Whereas the markets are largely agrarian and depend on the national population and its wealth, capitalism instead periodically migrate toward ever larger host organisms, leading nations toward expansion at the expense of the ‘optimisation’ of their home-markets.

This is where China comes in, with its peaceful ascent to the status of economic superpower. Are China and the dmith accumulation of capital required by the capitalist world system compatible? Adam Smith in Beijing is the third instalment in an informal trilogy covering the spread and transformation of Capitalism, particularly focused on the XXth century.

Lists with This Book. My main problem with the book is how it defines capitalism through the lens of Adam Smith and Braudel. Arrighi says that we can no longer use Marx to understand this economy, but Adam Smith. Had we maintained our alliances that we established with the invasion of Afghanistan, it would have been a similar power dynamic to Prussia. Julian Hartman rated it it was amazing Jun 28, Nov 22, Teresa rated ssmith really liked it.

In this magisterial new work, Giovanni Arrighi shows how China’s extraordinary rise invites us to reassess radically the conventional reading of The Wealth of Nations.
